Seriously though… imagine how much fun it was to see Amber and so many other happy shellers find CONES, TRUE TULIPS and so many other amazing shells on our iLoveShelling cruise with Sight Sea-R Cruises ? We had a boat load of awesomeness!
We stepped off the boat to find the beach loaded with shells.
See Amber’s face full of joy? No wonder! She found loads of CONES… she’s The Cone Queen!
Laura even found a WENTLETRAP. :)
Happy beach day!
We had some crazy happy shellers!
Shelle Kelle found two cones within 5 minutes- shelltastic!
OMG and look at how many ROSE PETAL TELLINS. Makes the heart pitter patter in pink.
Shell piles with GAUDY NATICAS
Rob, Evie and Milo were super star shellers.
They found so many shells of different varieties including… FIGHTING CONCHS, LIGHTNING WHELKS, SHARKS EYES, PEAR WHELKS, LETTERED OLIVES, GIANT ATLANTIC COCKLES, FLORIDA CONES and ALPHABET CONES
Shell photos speak louder than a million words …
On every iLoveShelling Cruise, I give lots of fabshellous gifts.
The best gift is a $25 gift certificate from Congress Jewelers on Sanibel… really, I’m not kidding!
It was a cruise on the water filled with sunshine, jumping DOLPHINS, lovely birds, seashells on a secluded island but most of all … spending the morning with such a lovely group of shellers. Thanks yall!
Looks like you had a great trip. Hope the rain holds off so we can join you on Tuesday.
Me too! See you there!
Oh wow!!! Great pictures!! And Shelle Kelle was on the trip, too!!! I am so sorry I am going to miss the Big Hickory Trip this year with you.
Oh yes i would love to go on a cruise to the island for😍
Looks wonderful! 🏝
Happy 8th Birthday Blog To you Pam!! 🐚
This cruise was awesome! My first (of many I hope)! The weather was perfect, the scenery was gorgeous…numerous dolphin sightings, the expertise that Pam shares, and the boat is filled with people enjoying the same hobby as you! Thanks from Indiana, Pam! SO.MUCH.FUN.
We had to reschedule our trip to Sanibel because of Hurricane Irma and are now scheduled for mid November. I have seen some comments about the water quality due to the discharge from Lake Okeechobee and wanted your opinion. We are staying at Song of the Sea on East Gulf Drive and I have seen the aerial pics of Lighthouse point posted on the Chamber of Commerce website. The water looks very brown and murky.
Wow–that’s a lot of gorgeous shells! Can’t wait – I’ll be seeing you in a couple of weeks, going to Big Hickory again. We’ve never been there in November, but the Shell Museum is doing a follow-up training for Shell Ambassadors, and I wanted to come for that. I couldn’t believe it coincided with one of your trips, when we’re only there for a long weekend! I feel so lucky to be able to be there. And I was excited to receive your book, for donating to the Museum fundraiser. I LOVELOVELOVE it! You are so talented. It’s beautifully done. Congratulations! See you soon.
Hoping you’ll add an ILoveShelling cruise to Big Hickory sometime during January 6-13!! I would definitely be on it!
So do you have to bleach the sand dollars. Some of mine are patterned with lavender and I would love to keep the color.
Pam it happened again! We were at blind pass the day before the last rain and there was a mountain of shells! They all came in at once as they sometimes do. Just as we were leaving I noticed an unusual shaped she’ll, slightly familiar. I thought it might be a queens Hemet, and after looking at your blog I see it is! Mines a little more beat up. What a rush!
Where is the 10/24 blog?
OMG….. how do I sign up??
this looks so fun. I beachcomb here in SoCal, but we don’t have
the pretty things that you do… or so many!
Would love to join you sometime! And I’ll bring you some of ours!
